Forum: etree Subject: Re: REVIEWS FOR AUD. RECORDINGS

I agree, although I don't mind reading stories about peoples experiences at various shows, they are often amusing and insightful. However the star system should reflect quality of music as well as sound. Personally, i like to stream at least 10-20 minutes of a show to see if the sound measures up.

Also i would like to request that those who used the reviews to bemoan the removal of sbd's and gave many shows a 1 star rating because of this, to please revise their ratings to reflect the quality of the actual show and sound. There are a few shows out there that now have significantly lower ratings than they deserve because of this tactic which made sense at the time, but now just hinders a quick overview of shows.

I'm not sure what the LMA's policy is regarding "off-topic" reviews, such as the ones that have polluted the AUD pages, but I wouldn't mind seeing some of them disappear.

Many of them are vicious as well as childish -- and the ugliness really reflects badly on the community. I want to send friends to the Archive for some treats, and it's unfortunate that they have to read through the relentless pouting attitudes of "unbrobenchain" for example, who spammed nearly every year the first day of the blackout.

Diane? Are they permanent?

I'm so glad everyone is breathing a bit more regularly today.

It's being taken under consideration; it'd be a difficult task to manually inspect everything with the amount of manpower. Meanwhile, if you could leave descriptive "error reports" on relevant items for the most egregious ones, that will enable tracking of the issue.
